Professional GOP asshole Erick Erickson discovers that the conservative/Republican base is very ugly

And of course he never did anything to foster their ugliness.

Schadenfreude!

ETA: sorry to make you click on Redstate, but seeing all the sick emails he got for criticizing Trump is priceless.

.... did Trump forget to use the dog whistle and hence blow the whistle on party's long-held semi-covert belief system? Well isn't that tough noogies.

Erickson probably took all the unsent hatemail in his saved drafts folder, sent them to himself with some minor edits, and wrote a self-pity story...

My take: I would expect that a large portion of those posts are from democrat operatives. They do do that kind of thing, you know. It truly is a part of their DNA to be fraudulent. I just don't buy it that serious conservatives are that vile. Naïve? Hope not. But I give the benefit of the doubt to fellow conservatives.
